have been admitted two time since my initial surgery because of an abscess we cant get rid of. Has been 6 weeks so far since my surgery and still have a drain in my left side (second one to be installed) to help with drainage of the abscess. The drain is now blocked as we cant flush it and waiting on the doctor to call back today to see if I have to go back in. I am also doing home IV's for the antibiotics needed for the abscess with the help of a in home nurse when needed
